Riders of Shaam Success
This August, 30 cyclists travelled for 7 days on a 500-mile bike ride from Leicester to Paris, all in aid of 4 appeals for Penny Appeal.
Starting on the 4th of August from the monumental clock tower in Leicester the team then travelled through 4 countries to get to their end goal of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The journey consisted of travelling to Cambridge and then Harwich International Port where they took an overnight ferry to the Hook of Holand.
The journey then commenced through Antwerp, Brussels and Lille and finally arrived on the 12th of August after an excruciating 7-day cycle.
Thanks to all of their amazing supporters, the Riders of Shaam raised just over £110,000 and raised over 100% of their target for each appeal.
The Riders of Shaam established in 2012 as a group of De Montfort University Students. They began riding to different locations within Europe, raising thousands of pounds for many great causes. Last year, the Riders of Shaam cycled from Leicester to Luxembourg and raised £76,000 for the 410-mile cycle.
This year, the riders decided to boost up to 90 extra miles and bump up the target and they did amazing!
Congratulations to every single one of the Riders of Shaam and thank you for raising such a huge amount of money for brilliant causes for Penny Appeal!
We look forward to the 2019 cycle and are excited to hear where you will all push yourself to go next year! We’re sure you can beat the records again and again!
